Join us, along with Katie Hudnall, for our first virtual social gathering of the year: Show Us Your…“Mark Making“
Thursday, March 4, 6 – 7pm EST
Katie will help us kick off the event by talking about what mark making means to her in this material — wood. It can mean many different things, to many different makers, in a variety of mediums. From pencil and pen lines, to paint, to carved surfaces that reflect the tools used, to the dents and kerf marks left behind by our machines. No other material so directly reflects a full history of its interactions with the human hand — metal and ceramic are a little too hard, fibers is too soft, etc. She thinks about and is influenced by Kim Winkle’s pencil pattern drawings, Mike Hosaluk’s scrawling pen lines, Michael Cullen’s beautiful carved box surfaces, Kristen Madsen’s meticulous carved patterns, Jenna Goldberg’s floral carved designs, the surfaces left behind on Martin Puryear’s large scale wooden sculptures, and old kitchen tables that reveal the place most sat at by the dents and scratches and worn edges on that part of their surface.
What/who influences you, and what are you doing to create your mark?
This event is free and open to all who want to join the fun!
